Effects of Sexual Assault Detailed by E. Jean Carroll in Court

From a Washington Post column by Monica Hesse headlined “Enduring effects of sexual assault detailed on stand”:

In the most visceral moment of E. Jean Carroll’s testimony in a New York courtroom this week, the advice columnist described exactly what Donald Trump allegedly did to her when they entered a Bergdorf’s dressing room together nearly 30 years ago. She testified that while she struggled against him, Trump pulled down her tights and then inserted his fingers inside her. It was “extremely painful,” she said, because he “curved” his fingers. “As I sit here today I can still feel it,” she said. Trump has denied the assault ever happened.
